Bridge tour

“Mind your head!”

Not only the river Rhine cuts through Leiden, also the old moat around the city is still intact and is connected to many canals. In total the waterways in Leiden add up to 28 kilometres which makes Leiden, after Amsterdam, the second most water-rich city in Holland. In order to connect the many streets and alleys of the old inner city across these waterways, there are 88 bridges in the area surrounded by the moats.

Familiarise yourself on the waterways in Leiden with these many low bridges, of which the name, shape and structure often suggest an old history. Get on board and an experienced skipper will tell you about the fascinating history of these bridges. And of course he or she will warn you when to stoop!
